Sonnet: On Looking Back In Time
Oh, how I wish to go back to my past,
With all the wisdom that I now possess!
I know this cannot happen: time flies fast;
I could have put my life in more harness!
Yet, anyway, my past was pretty good;
I wish I could have enjoyed much better;
Have tried to study much harder, I should;
My life was great, such things do not matter.
God has been kinder to me than others;
How can I thank my stars for all my luck;
It wasn’t so with some sisters and brothers;
Perhaps, they lacked some finance and more pluck!
But all the same, God has been kind to me;
I thank you God, with all my heart, truly!
